Police hunt for three men after attempted robbery in Burnham-On-Sea

Police revealed on Monday (February 2nd) that three men may have been involved in last week's attempted robbery at an antiques shop in Burnham-on-Sea.

As first reported by Burnham-On-Sea.com last Friday afternoon (January 30th), the incident happened at 4.23pm at the shop in Victoria Street, pictured right.

"The suspects – two white men - approached the premises and tried to force their way in past the owner. There was a scuffle and the two men left the property empty-handed," a police spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"They ran along Victoria Street and got into a parked silver coloured car. It is possible there was a third man in the vehicle."

"The car is then thought to have sped off in the direction of Brean and is reported to have been driven at speed and erratically."

Police are keen to hear from anyone who may have seen the vehicle, especially in the Brean area on Friday evening, and anyone able to help police with their enquiries is urged to contact Taunton CID on 0845 456 7000.
